Hilton Foundation Awards Grant to Women Religious

The National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO) recently received a $2.5 million grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. NRRO initiatives will help religious communities in the United States address retirement-funding shortfalls, improve future services, and identify best practices.

“Words cannot express our gratitude to The Hilton Foundation”, said NRRO Executive Director Sister Janice Bader.

The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation was created in 1944 by Conrad N. Hilton, founder of Hilton Hotels. The grant is part of the Hilton Foundation’s Catholic Sisters Initiative, launched in 2013, which seeks to enhance the vitality of congregations throughout the world, enabling sisters to minister more widely and effectively. It furnishes strategic support for three primary areas: membership, resources and congregational leadership.
